‘This gender crap needs to just stop,’ mom
says after father-daughter dance postponed

McClatchy News, by Josh Magness

Posted By:NorthernDog, 2/7/2018 3:23:54 PM

This Friday was supposed to be a father-daughter dance for elementary school students in Staten Island, New York. But now that dance had been postponed because of concerns that it would violate the state’s new gender guidelines that aim to create a more inclusive space for transgender people, according to the New York Post. “Gender-based policies, rules, and practices can have the effect of marginalizing, stigmatizing, stereotyping and excluding students, whether or not they are transgender or gender nonconforming,” read the guidelines from the New York City Department of Education. “For these reasons, schools should review such policies, rules and

There already is a pronoun for those who do not identify male or female. It is called "it". He, she, it. Got it? Good.

Dems, massively overplaying this hand.

99.9% of people know without even thinking about it whether they are a male or female, and have since they were very young. I have no particular animosity towards those who are confused, but I also do not think that the whole rest of the world needs to adjust everything to please a tiny, tiny minority of oddball people with a problem. And we don´t particularly need to harm them with laws, but we also don´t need to get crazy ruining life for everyone else because there MIGHT BE some sort of hurt feelings, or they may feel "out of the mainstream". Those feelings happen because they ARE out of the mainstream.

And "gender" is never assigned...it is recognised by the physical appearance of the baby´s body.

Is there no one at the school with the common sense (I know, it isn´t that common anymore) to simply call the dance a "Parent-Child Dance?"

Then, I guess someone would complain that leaves out all the orphans, we wouldn´t want to hurt their feelings, now would we??

Let me go off the reservation. I think the school is wise not to hold a father-daughter dance. Not all of the elementary school girls have fathers who could escort them to the dance -- maybe the girl´s mom and dad have divorced and dad is no longer around (or available thanks to the court-ordered custody/visitation agreement), maybe dad is in jail, maybe dad died. Point is, some girls will be hurt mightily because they do not have a father to take them to the dance. A school should not to be a partner to this pain. There can still be father-daughter dances, at church or the Elks Club or the Knights of Columbus or even at a town rec event. Let´s not confuse intrusions (like transgendered in your girl´s locker room) with forbearance. Not holding this dance at a public school is a matter or sensitivity, of what used to be called good manners. I cannot imagine a single LDotter being pleased with the thought of even one ten or twelve year old girl sitting home crying. Have we become so polarized that we yell out "Dilly, Dilly!" without even thinking. This, IMO, was not only not the end of the earth, it was maybe even a good, kind, and appropriate move by the school.

So these gender confused little darlings make up less that 1/10 of 1% of the population and we roll over traditions so as not to hurt their little feelings and confuse them even more? I say they parents should organize their own Father Daughter Gala at a local country club or high end facility and ask for businesses to sponsor the event. It would be soooo big! In your face fools!

What if schools just taught the basics so kids could get a real education without all of the extras?

Jeanine Pirro gave a glowing assessment of Donald Trump’s chances for 2020, saying that if the president decides to run for re-election, he would probably be unbeatable. “I have to tell you. I don’t think he can be beat right now. I think the left is so disorganized,” Pirro told TheWrap in an interview Tuesday, saying that she could not think of a single Democrat who could pose a credible threat to Trump in 2020. “They are just making fools of themselves.

The Pew Research Center asked Americans who they thought did the best job as president in their lifetime. The top pick: former President Barack Obama. Obama was the choice of 44 percent of the respondents in the poll, which was published Wednesday. Bill Clinton came in second with 33 percent and Ronald Reagan was third with 32 percent. Although not yet even halfway through his first term, President Donald Trump got 19 percent to place him in fourth place, ahead of both Bushes, John F. Kennedy and Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

Christiane Amanpour and husband, Jamie Rubin, are calling it quits after 20 years of marriage. The Washington Post cited "a friend of the pair" that said the CNN host and her longtime partner are divorcing, though the split is "amicable" and "the two remain close friends." The couple wed in Rome in 1998 one year after meeting in Sarajevo, Bosnia, over "late-night margaritas." Amanpour, 60, and Rubin, 58, share an 18-year-old son, Darius. The Post reports that the host of CNN´s "Amanpour" -- and the network´s chief international correspondent -- currently lives in London, while Rubin recently moved to Washington,

Rosenstein Asks Prosecutors to Help

WASHINGTON — Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, has asked federal prosecutors to help review the government documents of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, according to a letter obtained by The New York Times on Wednesday. Mr. Rosenstein’s request was an unusual insertion of politics into federal law enforcement. While the Justice Department has helped work on previous Supreme Court nominations, department lawyers in Washington typically carry out that task, not prosecutors who pursue criminal investigations nationwide. But in an email sent this week to the nation’s 93 United States attorneys, Mr. Rosenstein asked each

   

 



 
Democrats ready ´Abolish ICE´

A Democratic proposal to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement would shutter the agency, probe whether its agents had flouted international law, and create a special commission to rethink how the federal government handles asylum seekers and undocumented immigrants. The text of Rep. Mark Pocan´s "Abolish ICE" bill, obtained Tuesday by The Washington Post, was sent to House Democrats as they returned from the Fourth of July recess. The legislation, still being tweaked before release, is co-sponsored by Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., and Rep. Adriano Espaillat, D-N.Y., both of whom are immigrants. In an interview, Pocan, D-Wis., said the legislation would

Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement from the Supreme Court, and President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to succeed him, is the doomsday scenario liberals feared when Senate Republicans thwarted the appointment of Merrick Garland in 2016: The GOP’s brazen act of democratic sabotage will almost certainly deliver the high court to the far right for a generation. In the years ahead, the court will probably further erode reproductive rights, gay rights and voting rights, ushering in the darkest era in American history since the post-Reconstruction period.

Starbucks eliminating plastic straws from

NEW YORK — Starbucks is going strawless. The coffee company announced Monday that it will phase out plastic straws from all of its stores by 2020. The changes will help Starbucks eliminate more than 1 billion plastic straws per year, the company said. Plastic straws contribute to ocean pollution and pose a danger to marine life. Some governments have begun banning them. To eliminate straws, Starbucks is transitioning from the flat, plastic lids that require them, to ones that feature a raised lip you can drink from. The new designs have drawn comparisons to an adult “sippy cup.” (Snip) Frappuccino

President Donald Trump is going down to the wire as he makes his choice on a replacement for retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, but he says with his final four options "you can´t go wrong." Trump spoke to reporters Sunday afternoon before returning to Washington from a weekend at his private golf club in New Jersey, where he deliberated his decision amid furious lobbying and frenzied speculation. Relishing the suspense, Trump insisted he still hadn´t locked down his decision, which he wants to keep under wraps until a 9 p.m. Monday announcement from the White House. "I´m very close

The party that has embodied Scandinavian social democracy for decades risks a historic beating. With nine weeks of political campaigning left, latest polls estimate the level of support for Sweden´s Social Democrats at about 25 percent. If confirmed in the Sept. 9 general election, it would be the party´s worst result on record. Like its sister parties across Europe, the group has been wrong-footed by rising opposition to immigration across the continent. Under its leadership, Sweden has seen an influx of about 400,000 immigrants since the Syrian refugee crisis of 2015 -- a massive number for a country of 10 million

As President Donald Trump prepares to name his Supreme Court nominee on Monday, disgruntled Democrats are carping at Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell for his cheap politics in denying even a vote on their highly qualified pick in 2016. They also need to look in the mirror. Democrats set the stage for their powerlessness to affect the court choice, and their reaction just deepens their political anguish. A year ago, Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer spearheaded a filibuster against Neil Gorsuch, nominated by Trump to succeed the late Justice Antonin Scalia. Predictably, McConnell changed the rules on a party line

Marina Gross, a State Department translator, was pictured along with Trump, Putin, and Putin´s translator at their Helsinki summit. Interest in her role has only grown, after furious critics accused Trump of ´treason´ for failing to push Putin publicly in any way at their Helsinki summit. It was after that meeting that Trump emerged only to engage in a disastrous press conference where he took Putin´s denial of election interference over

Was Russia´s effort to interfere in the 2016 election the most important issue on the table at President Trump´s Helsinki summit with Vladimir Putin? No. But it´s not an unimportant issue, either, and Trump knew the American press is obsessed with it. So he knew it would play a big role in the Trump-Putin post-summit news conference. There are all sorts of aspects to the Trump-Russia affair, but in light of special counsel Robert Mueller´s decision to indict 12 Russian intelligence agents on the Friday before the Monday summit, the president also knew reporters would want to hear him specifically affirm

JOHANNESBURG - Barack Obama said on Tuesday the world should resist cynicism over the rise of strongmen, in an apparent reference to populist leaders who hold power in a number of countries. The Democratic former U.S. president did not name his Republican successor, Donald Trump, but the speech was among the most pointed comments he has made about politics since leaving office in January 2017.
